Songwriter Dion McGregor became famous in the 1960s for narrating his dreams in his sleep. His flatmate recorded him doing so. In their new film "somniloquies", Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Verena Paravel overcome the boundaries between inner dreamscapes and human bodies. In this case, sleeping in the cinema means pushing forward to its very limits.
